Grade 5 Happenings




           I would like to thank all the students and parents for the beautiful flowers I received on Teacher Appreciation Day.  They truly brightened my day! 

The 2017/2018 school year is nearing its end.  I am so proud of the academic growth the fifth graders have made this year.  They have accomplished much, and I am confident they are ready for the challenges middle school offers.

A wonderful time was had by all on our field trip to the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History in New Haven.  The students did an excellent job completing the scavenger hunts on the various exhibits.  Special thanks to all the parents who chaperoned the trip.

The fifth-grade authors have spent weeks in class writing their children’s book manuscripts.  Everyone should be almost finished with the writing portion.  Now they are on their own to illustrate or compile photographs and put their creations together. Students should remember to add an “About the Author” page.  At the end of the year, they will be reading their masterpieces to students in the lower grades.

At the end of each year, the fifth and sixth grade like to collaborate on a language arts project.  This year the students will spend the last full week of school working together.  They will be donning their acting caps as they perform poems for two voices.  Hopefully everyone will have some fun!

Everyone is invited to celebrate the students’ accomplishments at the Awards Ceremony on the last day of school.  Check Mrs. Sampiere’s weekly newsletter for the time.

I would like to thank you all for sharing your children with me.  They are a terrific group of young people, who have worked hard for me all year.

I wish you all an enjoyable and exciting summer!
